Soca Eden by Destra Garcia | Soca 2024

Move over, ordinary soca, because Destra Garcia's "Soca Eden" has arrived, and it's pure, unadulterated bliss. This isn't some manufactured pop-soca fluff; this is the real deal, straight from the "Queen of Bacchanal" herself. Forget lip-syncing and autotune—Destra Garcia sings with the raw passion and vibrant soul of the legendary "Blacks" (that man had had throat) who paved the way for today's soca scene. She doesn't need fancy production to mask her lack of talent; her voice alone can make a hurricane jump up and wave its flag.

This is Groove Soca at its finest, marinated in Destra's signature class and seasoned with her unwavering love for the genre. "This is Soca Eden," she declares, and you believe her. Every note oozes with the joy, the longing, and the very essence of carnival. You can hear the years of dedication, the sweat and tears poured onto the stage, woven into the fabric of this song. It's a love letter to Soca, a testament to its power to unite, liberate, and set our hearts ablaze. Lyrics of love to Soca and Carnival:

Land ah de party 
Land of the free
Land ah de party
That is we
We are the soul of Carnival
We are the feting capital
We who start the tradition
Love on a high note
Down on the Soca Eden
Bring back the vibe now
Leh we show dem Soca Eden
Soca Rum and Steelband playing
Down in de Soca Eden

And let's not forget the magic behind the production. The experience and talent of XplicitMevon's production make it a masterpiece of its own—clean, smooth, and bursting with sonic sunshine. Every layer of this composition fits in place masterfully, from keys by Stemz Production to Kyle Peters' guitar and Jeron Paul's bass, which fit together seamlessly, building a foundation for Destra's vocals to soar. Anthony Lowhar's mixing and mastering add the final polish, ensuring every drop of Soca goodness reaches your ears in pristine quality.

"Soca Eden" feels mature and refined, like a fine wine of the soca world. It's professionally done and meticulously crafted, yet it never loses its soul. This is music for grown-ups who know their Soca and who appreciate the depth and nuance that a seasoned pro like Destra Garcia can bring.

In short, "Soca Eden" is everything you want in a soca song and more. It's a celebration, a declaration, and a sonic paradise. So crank up the volume, dust off your dancing shoes, and let Destra Garcia transport you to the heart of Soca Eden. You won't regret it.

Recommendation: Highly recommended and would love to hear this on the Steelpan. This is a must-have for any true Soca lover's playlist.
